Hairy Maclary Shoo

Hairy Maclary Shoo by Lynley Dodd, ISBN 978-1-877423-31-4 RRP $25.00 hardback

Hairy Maclary
was having some fun,
messing about
with his friends
in the sun.
Frisky and skittish,
they romped
and they ran,

Hairy Maclary jumps into a delivery van and ends up on the other side of town - and into lots more mischief.

Another delightful Hairy Maclary story from Lynley Dodd. Already it has gone to the top of weekly bestseller list - see NZ Bookseller web. Parents and under five year olds will thoroughly enjoy reading this rhythmic tale together.

Other Reviews:
"Ultimately it may be Lynley Dodd's attention to detail and her absolute empathy for children's worlds that make Hairy Maclary such a hit. That, and her enormous sense of fun with story and language. As Hairy heads off on another chaotic adventure the verse is beautifully paced as usual and words like hullabaloo, shemozzle and skeedaddle frolic off the tongue like playful puppies. The toyshop scene has the toys that kids love, Miss Plum rescues Hairy for a happy ending and Hairy and his friends look and act like everyone's favourite dog." Matt Bowler,freelance reviewer
